I wouldn’t go that far!:D ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 8, 2008 I think it’s great news… I like Melissa! Log in to Reply Tina October 8, 2008 Well, in my opinion, Natalie is the only one of Viki’s kids worth rooting for right now. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 8, 2008 I liked Natalie and Jared. But Ron has raped them too. The stain of Nash’s death is forever upon them. Wow, I HAVE been watching that show too much, that line was SO 80′s primetime soap! Where are my shoulder pads! Tina, let’s catifight in a mud put and pull off each others earbobs! Log in to Reply elbugten October 8, 2008 I think it’s great news in that we won’t have to watch “Natalie In A Pit” for 6 weeks while MA irons out her deal like her last contract negotiation. Although we ARE currently watching “Natalie In A Box”, so maybe my point is moot, lol. Log in to Reply EmmyLoser October 8, 2008 I go back and forth with Archer, but right now I like her, and I’m finding Natalie one of the few characters on OLTL that I am rooting for. (Jared I could take or leave . . .) Log in to Reply Sweetie October 9, 2008 I am thrilled! I love Natalie. I hope she gets a good storyline after this horrible Tess story is over. Log in to Reply Jammylove October 9, 2008 LOOOVEE natalie YAYAYA Log in to Reply dsrbroadway October 9, 2008 Hopefully the new contract includes a “No Jolie” clause! I love Melissa and Natalie and glad we’ll have them around for a few more years. Log in to Reply podcastjunkie October 9, 2008 I think its great news I love Melissa and Nat but I usually don’t like the loser guys they set her up with…present pairing included. Log in to Reply Trudi October 9, 2008 I am surprised by this announcement only because I didn’t think MA’s contract was due for renewal until next year. Hmmmm! But I am thrilled. Natalie is my favorite character on the show and Melissa has continued to grow as a performer throughout her tenure. I guess that’s why other than the legacy characters like Starr and Matthew, she’s THE veteran performer in the under 30 group. I am delighted to know she’ll be around for the foreseeable future.

Supposedly the higher ups want to lock people in BEFORE the writers embark on a big new story for them. There are also rumors that heads will be rolling soon. It will be interesting to see what happens …….. and Jamey … whenever you are ready Log in to Reply nolanspice October 9, 2008 I agree with Trudi in that I’ve enjoyed watching Melissa Archer grow into the role of Natalie. Personally, I really like the pairing of Natalie and Jared. Two flawed characters who came to town with questionable morals certainly have a lot in common. She’s actually more enjoyable than she was when she was paired with Goth Cop John. They always bothered me, that and the fact that he’s like 12 years older than her or something like that! I also agree with Jamey that Natalie and Jared are cursed by the blood of Nash. I’m hoping there’s a way that this pans out and I believe that will happen when Viki comes back to town.
